Bear Caution

Early summer is lean time for bears, reports Andy Timmins, Fish and Game bear biologist. Spring vegetation has hardened off and is less valuable as a food source and summer fruits that provide food is not available. “This period of low food abundance causes bears to search out high-quality, readily available foods provided by humans, and is the main reason why the majority of bear complaints in New Hampshire occur during June and July,” says Timmins.
He reminds residents that feeding bears is illegal and dangerous, and urges chicken coop owners to use electric fences.
